The State Theater was a small theater operated by Buckley Amusement Enterprises of Shamokin, PA. Buckley also operated the Capitol Theater and Majestic Theater in Shamokin and the Elk Theater in Mahanoy City. It was one of two theaters in Mt. Carmel the other being the grander Victoria Theater which had been built by the Chamerlain Amusement Co and later operated by Victoria Amusement Enterprises which was based in Shamokin and operated theaters under the Victoria name in Shamokin and Mahanoy City.

The State Theater closed in the late-1950’s. Perhaps someone with greater knowledge of this theater can add more information to this site.

This weblog post at Coal Region Notebook says that the State Theatre was at the southeast corner of Third and Hickory Streets. This comment by Stick82 on our Victoria Theatre page says that the State was located where the Post Office is now. The Post Office is indeed at the southeast corner of E. Third and Hickory Streets. The Post Office is at 1 S. Hickory, but I don’t know which street the theater fronted on.

Stick82 says the State Theatre fronted on Hickory, the second building from the corner. The most likely address was thus 3 South Hickory Street.
